Gee, I wonder why?

After last week's political firestorm over attacks on U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that President Obama's approval rating on foreign policy has dropped five points since August.

In the poll, 49 percent approve of the president's job in handling foreign policy, versus 46 percent who disapprove.

Last month, 54 percent said they approved of his foreign-policy handling.

===============


$16 Trilion in debt. QE3 operative. Gas at $3.80 a gallon. Unemployment over 8 %. Seniors are getting sub 1% on their cash savings, Embassy's on fire, foreign service officers dead.

Yeah, this guy is coasting to re-election!

Oh and from 1948-2009, America experienced a total of 39 months of 8%+ unemployment.

Under Obama: 43 straight months of 8%+ unemployment.

Of course his approval numbers are still higher than Romneys. What does that say about your nominee.

dj,
I find it rater curious that Obama's job approval #'s went up at Gallup after it was announced the Obama campaign is suing Gallup.

That's one way to get your poll numbers up there.

lmfaooooooooooooooooooooooo i didnt know Presidents control the price of oil.  wow you are clueless

maybe you should go back to grade school and actually learn what powers Presidents actually have.

heres a little clue, clueless.  Price of oil is controlled by OPEC and also the trade speculators are adding 25-35 bucks on to each barrel of oil, but hey lets blame Obama for it.

Why, because you say so?

How much premium is there into the price of oil because of speculative leveraged trading?

You should probably re-read what I wrote.

Good to see a moderator in this thread preventing the insults too.

Complete & utter baloney.

You can not demonstrate what you said is true at all.

PS: the stated policy goal of the Obama Administration is to raise the cost of energy and gasoline.

What was an insult from me, that I questioned his conclusive statement? 

You do that non-stop all day long here, I asked how he drew his conclusion and I ask the same to you..

How do you say it is baloney?

I can demonstrate that it is completely true and it isnt difficult..

Why have oil prices dropped 7 dollars in the last two days? Has there been some massive news or change in demand in TWO DAYS to make the price move like this?

Do you understand the economic supply and demand curve for a ologopoly/cartel and how they can and do set prices because they corner the supply market?

cd is 100% correct..the leveraged momentum trading of commodities has added large price inflation to commodities, cartels add large price inflations to anything where the supply is controlled and not determined from traditional supply and demand models.

So what can you say to refute this obvious public information?

Romney is shooting himself in the foot attacking Obama on this.

Reagan did the opposite in 1980 with the Iran incident: "I support president Carter 100%. Period."
Romney does not have that class and integrity.

Reagan won the election btw.

Wallstreet, 
I wasn't referring to you.  I guess posters are able to refer to me as clueless, which wouldn't be an "insult" under forum rules.

no wall Cd is wrong and I think you are misinformed

OPEC does not set the price of oil....they control some of supply but they do not set the price of oil at the end of the day.

Lords,

Controlling supply is controlling prices. 

They can ramp or close supply via an email to member countries.

What would prices be if we supplied our needs and werent held hostage by OPEC?

Not 100 per barrel.

Or even better, place a 100% margin req on speculative investors and  watch what would happen.

Lords, opec can indeed control the price of oil, because they are in control of the supply.

also my post was not to you in the first place,it was to the truck driver blaming obama for the worlds oil prices.


lastly if some of you whine and cry about being called clueless, maybe you should grow up and take your diapers off.  Never seen so many people cry about being called a name. Must have been some real wimps in school

Jesus it is like the mods here have to regulate us posters like were 11 years old. And the sad thing is you'd support that.

I understand what you guys are saying - I am just tying the commidity traders/brokers into the equation.

Do we have to start down the mod help BS again?

14 accept being called clueless....you post enough that someone is bound to call you something dude. Just roll with it or fire back an insult. I dont know.....Unless someone gets banned then we should all just accept that ppl may or may not call us names like dumbfuck, clueless, douchebag etc.......they are just words fellas........as long as it isnt a racial, ethinic, homophobic or some slur like that cant we all just get along.,.....ya dumb people

or make all these traders have to actually take possession of the oil, buying tankers and storage facilities to hold the oil.  Watch how fast those traders get out of this business.   Or like Wall said, make them have to come up with the cash.

Personally i feel things like oil which the whole world needs, shouldnt be screwed around with by traders.  Its just to important to the whole world.
